            I appreciated that it was easy to mix and apply contents. It was my first time trying this specific hair product and I wasn't too please that it left my hair feeling and looking a dry and dull. I don't think I would ever use this product again.

              Comments about Garnier Olia Oil-Powered Permanent Color:

              I usually don't leave reviews on products but I felt like this needed one..
              I used the color light intense auburn. This was the worst hair color I have ever used.
              Sure, the smell wasn't bad and it was easy to use. But it looks absolutely awful.
              After I rinsed this out, I had patches that were Ronald McDonald red and some that were strawberry blonde (which is my natural color.)
              I'm stuck like this for another week until I can afford to put brown over it. In the meantime, I'm just going to try my hardest to fade it..

              They use more packaging than other quality brands and I'm not convinced that it's a better product.

                  Comments about Garnier Olia Oil-Powered Permanent Color:

                  Worst box haircolor I've ever used! I got the Medium Garnet color at the advice of the store associate and it turned my hair pinkish red shade instead of medium burgundy pictured. It also turned out very uneven with strands of hair looking like the color didn't touch them at all even though I've had a friend helping me and I am 100% sure every strand was covered. It has now been two-ish weeks since I've dyed by hair, yet every time I shower the color bleeds staining my towels pink(yep, after two weeks and 7-9 shampoos). The color also faded very fast which was a blessing in disguise. Honestly, I've had "28 shampoo" semi permanent haircolor last longer than this failure. It also dried out my hair horribly, I had less dry hair back when I used to bleach it platinum blond!
                  To sum it up: avoid this like the plague!

                  The bottle has hard to hold, making it a bit messy.
                  This product did not make my hair any thicker or silkier. Although, it did seem easy on my strands.

                  I use permanent color to cover up my gray hair every 4-6 weeks. This color covers up my gray and lasts longer than any of the other colors I have used (which is a good bit of them).
